The Godhead

This page of Scripture references is by no means meant to be exhaustive. Even all of the Holy Scripture is not an exhaustive treatment of God. The Best Communication to man of Who God is found in the Person of Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, God in our language. Yet, even when Christ came in the flesh, because He came in humility, the glory of God was veiled. In Scripture we have all we need to know about God, for God is the Author, and He in His perfection would leave nothing necessary out.  What Scripture tells us we know is accurate.
